Annual Akom for the Akan God Tegare

The Temple of Nyame and the Asuo-Gyebi Shrine and Tegare Shrine of Washington, D.C. invite you to the Annual Akom for the Great God “TEGARE” of Ghana, West Africa.

There will be: DANCING & DRUMMING, HONORING AND GIVING PRAISE TO NANA TEGARE

Akom [ah-COMB] is an integral part of traditional religious expression among the Akan of Ghana. Akom describes not only the state of a Priest being possessed by a spirit, but also the performing arts and rituals which surround and invoke possession. It is common for a God to provide instruction, warnings, advice, comfort and healing for attendees during Akom. It is a critical aspect of all Traditional African Spiritual Systems.
